Mamma Agata's Hidden Treasure is where we had our wedding and reception. They also have private dinners and cooking classes. We jumped at the opportunity to be part of a cooking class in Italy and from such a great chef! Mamma Agata was the chef for celebrities, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Liz Taylor, Fred Astaire and Humphrey Bogart, just to name a few. It was great learning how to make some of the appetizers and main dishes from our own wedding reception!
Chiara is Mamma Agata's daughter and one of the sweetest persons I've ever met.
Mamma Agata was a beautiful soul...so full of life, love, and laughter. She is so funny. In a weird way she reminded us of my maternal grandma.
Mmmm I forgot what this eggplant appetizer was called, but it was yummy!
Mamma Agata was a great teacher. Chiara translated for her throughout the day.
And oh my God these cherry tomatoes were the absolute best tomatoes we had ever had.
So sweet! We ate them just like candy. :)
You can't get tomatoes like that in the States.
We had a fabulous time! Mamma Agata's cooking class was the highlight of our trip, other than our actual wedding day of course. Mamma Agata, Chiara and their family were so welcoming, laid back and fun to be around.
We left there that day with a lot of great tips and Dan uses one tip when making sauces for pastas. We have some delicious recipes from that day that we hope to make soon, including some delicious fritters!
I can only hope that one day we can go back!
